Hendon's Ryman Premier clash against Wealdstone has been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch
2:13pm Monday 6th January 2014 in Sport
Hendon's home game to Wealdstone in the Ryman Premier this evening has been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.
The Greens were in action on Saturday and they claimed a 1-1 draw against Maidstone United.
Hendon's Jefferson Louis was dismissed shortly before the interval but Carl McCluskey put the Greens ahead in the second period.
The visitors' lead didn't last long however as Zac Attwood found the net for the home side. But, despite their man disadvantage, Hendon held on to claim a deserved point.
Greens boss Gary McCann was very pleased with the display from his side.
“I thought we were well worth a point," he told the club's website. "If we had snatched the win, and we really should have scored late on, I don't think anyone would have said it was a smash and grab win.
"I thought the boys were magnificent. It was a complete performance and although there were many good individual performances, it was the overall team display that pleased me most.
"Our style of play is suited by the 3G surface. We have trained on it at The Hive for three years so we are comfortable on it. We want to play a passing game and the surface allows us to do that.
"The red card was the right decision but a complete accident. Jefferson was trying to fend off the defender rather than attack him, and it was unfortunate timing that he caught him so well."
